Just amazing

The pasta were just amazing; home Made in one hand and very well cooked in the other hand! The gorgonzola cheese was so fresh. The staff is very smily and kind. Pity that they don't serve any expresso this remarkable dinner.

Tried the lasagne & aubergine cannelones, both were delicious. We also had some lovely caipirinhas. The waitress was lovely and the food was served in a timely manner. Nice atmosphere and seemed to be the liveliest restaurant in that área on a Sunday evening.

The location is great, and the servers were attentive. The food was good but not special. The pizzas crusts seemed to be those factory-made pie shells that you get all over Brazil. The bruschetta was worthwhile. The wine list was varied, but more expensive than the neighboring restaurants.

We went there in may. The place is nice and cozy. I had a pizza and my wife a lazagna. A few hours late my wife ended up in the hospital due to food poisoning. It was a horroble experience.

Was looking for a pizza, walked to Maria Bonita and found it crowded! Sat outside waiting for a table! It did take a while, but eventually we got that table!! Another ten minutes until the waitress came to us to take our order!! She left towards the kitchen but came back to tell us they were out of pizzas and... More

This is probably the best corner in town as far as where the action is. For us, the bruschetta was a standout, and the pasta portions are healthy. The kitchen was bustling and service was speedy, even when you order from the menu of the local Nordeste place two doors down (Lampiao). Our waitress was cool, and so was the... More

If you are looking for different food from the typical Brazilian fare, this restaurant serves up delicious Italian. It's not as authentic as if you were in Italy, but for a small town miles away from anything else, it delivers upon its promise of above average Italian.

I live in São Paulo which is known as one of the best places to eat Italian food and I can tell you that a single pasta (raviolli in red souce) in Maria Bonita was one of the best in my life. Must go place..

This is the top rated restaurant in Lencois, but we're not sure why. It's fun to sit out on the street and watch the people go by, but service was slow and the night we were there they didn't have the filet mignon special everyone raved about, so we opted for the pasta special that was posted on the blackboard....
